The Complete Aromatherapy & Essential Oil Handbook for Everyday Wellness by Nerys Purchon and Lora Cantele immediately sparked my interest as I use essential oils occasionally. My experience with essential oils at best was limited; using lavender in baths and lemon oil for cleaning. Today, with the help of this handbook I would consider my knowledge and application of essential oils in daily life to be above average.
This is a book you will want to break the sticky notes out for because it is chock-full of important properties, remedies and everyday care. My top bookmarked pages, which are now worn and torn is the treatment for headaches, immune system boosters and the hot and cold footbath. The most valuable part about having a collection of essential oils and a handbook as detailed as The Complete Aromatherapy & Essential Oil Handbook is that ailments are never planned, and having the correct tools, supplies and knowledge on hand will serve to be as useful as it is reassuring.
